It is the middle of World War II, and, with the help of trusted friends, Gabi, her mother and her cousin Max go into hiding in a tiny mountain village. It takes great willpower to endure months of fear in their cramped hiding space at the back of a barn, and eventually Gabi and Max sneak out for the first of many secret nighttime walks. Through the discovery of anti-Nazi partisan soldiers camped in the nearby woods and new roles as partisan scouts, Gabi and Max find strength and courage, and a renewed sense of hope in dark times.
Canadian Review of Materials Magazine - June 20, 2003
"There is never a dull moment in this story which is suspenseful, dramatic and action packed. The battle scenes are vivid and the human interactions compelling. The Night Spies is a great book for both genders and a memorable read. Highly recommended."


Red Cedar nominee, short-listed  CA  2006
